Book: Soil–Water–Root Processes: Advances in Tomography and Imaging, SSSA Special Publication 61, 2013
Published by: The Soil Science Society of America, Inc.

 

Rapid advances in tomography and imaging techniques and their successful application in soil and plant science are changing our sciences today. Many more articles using imaging and tomography are being published currently compared to 20 years ago. Soil–Water–Root Processes: Advances in Tomography and Imaging is a unique assemblage of contributions exploring applications of imaging and tomography systems in soil science. It provides an updated collection of X-ray computed tomography, synchrotron microtomography, neutron imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, geophysical imaging tools, and other tomography techniques for evaluating soils and roots. Exciting new procedures and applications have emerged, with the promise to propel forward our understanding of soil–plant properties and processes.
